Ronald (Ronnie) W. Eames, 56

May 15, 1965- March 8, 2022

Cherished husband, father, grandfather, and brother. Ronald (Ronnie) W. Eames passed away March 8, 2022 at his home in Spanish Fork, Utah.

Ronnie was born May 15, 1965 in La Mesa, California and was the beloved son of William Merrill and Mary Louise Eames. Ronnie grew up in Roy, Utah with his 5 brothers and 2 sisters and graduated from Roy High School. Ronnie first married Kami Webster on June 19, 1987, bringing 2 daughters into this world. Ronnie later was married to Julie Anne Brown on December 1, 2001. Together they had a total of 6 children that they raised starting in Syracuse, Utah. His career in the automotive industry then took them to Boston, Massachusetts in 2011 where their 3 younger children spent much of their adolescence. In 2018, Ronnie brought his family back to Utah to reside in Spanish Fork where they have remained ever since. Spanish Fork was like heaven on earth to Ronnie, he loved his home, the mountains and the beautiful nature that surrounded his family.

Ronnie loved his family dearly, his 6 children and 5 (soon to be 6) grandchildren meant everything to him. Ronnie was the epitome of a provider, a proud father and husband.

Ronnie was the General Manager for Tim Dahle Ford in Spanish Fork and had worked in the automotive industry his whole life. He was one of the hardest workers you've ever met. His work ethic came so natural, he truly had a gift at leading people. He had a winning attitude that influenced and made great impact on many. There are so many that will miss his smile, humor and positive attitude.

Ronnie loved playing in the outdoors. He loved driving his RZR, riding ATVs, going camping, hunting, and just enjoying the blessing of God's nature in any way he could. It is what he lived and worked so hard for. He gave his family the blessing and love of these things as well. There was nothing he enjoyed more than being with his family and doing the things he loved. Ronnie also loved sports and loved to golf. He was a huge fan of the New England Patriots, the Boston Red Sox and Utah Utes. Ronnie loved having his family at his home, he loved grilling up the best barbequed meats, and sitting around the table with his family to share a great meal together. These times we shared with him will be greatly missed.

Ronnie leaves behind in this world his wife Julie, six children, Charly Eames, Bailey (Skyler) Gallegos, Christian Drakos, Casey Eames, William Eames and Ashlee Eames. His 6 grandchildren, Olyvia (8), Henry (6), Eliana (3), Emelia (1), soon to be born Evelyn and Ryder (3). He is also survived by his 6 living siblings, Bryan Eames, Robert (Mary) Eames, Wendy (Lyle) Moklebust, Scott (Tiffany) Eames, Steve (Stacy) Eames, Mike (Cassandra) Eames.

Reuniting in heaven with him are his father and mother, William Merrill and Mary Louise Eames, his sister Amy Michelle Eames Hutchison, sister-in-law Kristee Eames, and first wife Kami Eames. Although there is pain in our hearts with this great loss, we are blessed knowing he is in peace and rejoicing with so many of our loved ones.
